A glimpse into the history and present day state of “The Badlands” or otherwise known as the Australian Kabi Coast. This article follows a few of the brave surfers to venture north of Noosa into the “final frontier” to surf perfect lines in shark infested waters. It also touches upon the aboriginal history of the region and their myths surrounding the protection of the Kabi Coast. A must read for anyone traveling or living in the area.
